    Hello, I am going to upgrade my mbp 2011 15" i7 using the samsung 470 ssd, I'm mainly using this ssd due to the reliability reviews on this forum
    Do I need to be concerned about activating TRIM ? I intend to keep this mbp for 3 years & do not want to see a slow down in performance
    Thanks

    If the samsung ssd has built in GC, does that mean I don't really need to enable trim?

    Does the GC do the same job as trim?

    Thanks for taking the time to help me

    You don't. Samsung SSDs have solid GC capabilities.

    Effectively, yes.
